Numbers

I think the year has officially reached the completely-crazy-lead-up-to-christmas part where the to-do list and social things and the year's goals and a thousand other things start to form a hectic sort of tangle to conquer before it's time for time off.

At this time of year, my virgo brains starts making list and calculations and numbers. Right now it goes something like:

1 revision due in 2-4 weeks
9 sleeps until U2 concert
1 election to vote in
2 parental birthdays in the next 10 days
1 orange cat to convince that 5am isn't breakfast time and sleeping all night is good
20 sleeps until the Bon Jovi concert
7 months til my next book is due
34 sleeps until Christmas
At least 3 big day job projects to finish
1 spinning class left
6 or so Christmas functions
1 complete nanowrimo fail
36 sleeps until Kitten day

And the list goes on. I'm looking forward to a well earned post Christmas collapse! Until then, caffeine is my friend!

Anyone else eyeing the silly season to-do mountain with a mix of anticipation and trepidation?

You forgot 10,000 presents to buy. Lol. I love lists too.

Oh man, I hadn't even started to think about that. Or cards! Yikes.

12 calls with Telstra to make on Xmas Day
11 Chrissy cakes for friends to bake
10 Kris Kringles to wrap for my staff
9 new tinsel bits to buy (to replace the ones the cats shredded)
8 garden beds to weed (so the house looks good for Christmas)
7 days until December
6 Christmas lights to string outside
5 mins to finish this list before my self imposed surfing time limit is reached
4 rooms in the house to clean
3 cats to brush (so they don't shed too badly in clean house)
2 books to write
1 new Christmas tree to resurrect (after the cats try to climb it - again - for the 3rd year in a row)

There's my list, sigh.
